Wildlife award for homes firm

Homebuilding firm David Wilson Homes has won a bronze standard RSPB award after designing its show home gardens at Drayton Meadows in Market Drayton with the local wildlife in mind.

The firm has worked with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds to create nature-friendly gardens at the development on Blandford Way.

Features include hedgehog houses, bird and bat boxes and many plants and landscaping features designed specifically to attract insects such as bees and butterflies.

David Wilson Homes has been partnered with the RSPB since 2014. It says the agreement is the first of its kind in the UK and aims to boost natural habitats at David Wilson Homes’ developments across the country.

Steve Barton of David Wilson Homes Mercia said: “Hopefully the new gardens will be teeming with life throughout the seasons and anyone that comes to see them will be able to pick up some great tips for their new home.”
